RAVENSWOOD, W.Va. - An assistant coach twice before in the BACF Basketball Classic, Ravenswood's Chris Michael will lead the West Virginia girls this year in their 10th annual game against Ohio. Michael, 37, has been the head coach of the Red Devil girls for the last decade, but also played basketball for Mick Price at Ravenswood, graduating in 1991. Michael started college at Fairmont State, where he ran cross country. ''I was the Falcons' No. 1 cross-country runner for two years,'' he said. But Michael ended up transferring to Marshall, from where he got his education degree and then returned to Jackson County to begin teaching, eventually moving to Ravenswood High School. Now in his 13th year in the Jackson County school system, Michael served as an assistant to then-girls head coach Butch Varney for two years before assuming the girls cage reins for the last 10 seasons.
